About Glade Festival
The UK’s most forward-thinking electronic music event Glade Festival returns for 2011, revolutionised and stripped back to it’s shiny roots. Taking place at a brand new venue this year’s festival will feature a selection of the biggest names in cutting-edge electronic music. This years event sees the festival scaled down in terms numbers (strictly limited to 5000 capacity) BUT will feature the same attention to detail which saw the event voted Best Dance Festival 2008 at the UK Festival Awards.
The Glade Festival roared into existence in 2004.
It was started by 4 chaps who, between them, had run and been involved in electronic music festivals the world over, especially in Southern Africa, and in the wonderful Glade Stage, the best place to catch the finest breaks and techno at Glastonbury Festival.
The idea was and still is to create an outdoor space where proper electronic music could be ...heard, danced to and totally loved in a colourful environment where you could let go, express yourself and be free of sponsors and music made by people who don’t get it…
It was a fantastic success and quickly gathered a momentum that took us all be surprise. Selling out in no time each year and taking the festival to a point where it had to move homes and then very sadly last year had to be cancelled.
